More WSOP Events to Be Broadcast Live Online

by , May 21, 2009 | 1:49 pm

Only four will be on ESPN the TV … but many of the rest will be available at ESPN and Bluff the dot-coms:

24 events in total on [and/or Bluff] … including the $50k HORSE.

    I don’t believe the ones that’ll be on Bluff’s website will be on ESPN360. I guess this was done for those whose cable provider still doesn’t offer ESPN360 (Time Warner, Comcast is getting ESPN360 soon).

  2. DanM

    So not 24 events on ESPN 360? Just 24 events broadcast one one sight or the other?

  3. Kevin Mathers

    That’s how I read it, yes.

  4. DanM

    LOL, then I’ll trust you. After our 25 vs. 27 almost-wager, I’m a little gun-shy about questioning your reads.

  5. Seth

    Yes, it’s either or. Check your local listings! In the U.S., on either ESPN360 OR Outside U.S., on PKR’s website, the official non-U.S. presenting sponsor of the streams.

  6. Kevin Mathers

    I must say Dan, you get all the big names to comment here.

  7. DanM

    I blame you for that, Kevmath.

  8. Poker Shrink

    Which FOUR events are on ESPN, all I see are the $40K and the main event.

  9. Kevin Mathers

    The Champions Invitational and Ante Up for Africa.

  10. Poker Shrink

    Like I said: two events are being televised.

  11. California Jen

    The pre-WSOP conference call said that the Champions Invitational and Ante Up for Africa will also be televised. They may not be listed on the ESPN website yet, but there are dates (don’t have them handy) dedicated to these other two events as well.

  12. Kevin Mathers

    The good Dr’s point (which I realized after he zinged me) is that the Champions Invitational and Ante Up broadcasts aren’t really events.

  13. Poker Shrink

    Blame it all on Dan for getting fat and lazy in Las Vegas and letting the ESPN media hype get away with “televising four events”. Really its so easy to buy the corporate line on most anything, almost as easy as blaming it all on Dan.

  14. Kevin Mathers

    Would it have been more appropriate to say that ESPN is televising 2 bracelet events and two special events? I’ve read elsewhere that the Ante Up for Africa tournament is scheduled to take 5 hours to complete. Dedicating 2 hours to this is silly imo, but I guess it helps the “good for poker” crowd.
